Cube / toaster

Cube
Cube

The existing toasters only emphasize functional features. So, they often cause accident when a child puts something other than bread into the insert including their hands. Cube is a toaster for child protection while still preserving its commercial value for the adult. Cube opens up like a cassette tape player. The hidden insert when not in use removes curiosity-invoking elements from children. Also, it has double kids Lock function which has double hinge on the cover. It requires press and push movements. It is difficult for children to use but easy for adults. Rounded three corners and remaining one indicator is a direction of sliding.
